to talk about this bigger issue of how education is changing dramatically in america as we move from textbooks to online learning. and in the past, each state and in texas the state board of education, would review textbooks to be sure the information was right and that there wasn't a bias. and that that textbooks would be distributed and parents could see them. they've been approved. today, we have an onslaught of online products by c-scope, which was not involved in this particular lesson. >> megyn: that's the other that has the agenda in texas. >> right, that's the other entity and now you have safari montage with this video and talked to the state board of education. we've had 1300 bids, up dramatically, from textbook publishers for online curriculum because they're making the transition. now, we obviously want to stay up with technology in our schools. it's less expensive to deliver the product this way. students are more engaged in technology than they are in ready heavy textbooks, but we've lost control, megyn, and this really concerns me. now, safari montage, if you look on t

of the health education committee, this is not just a veterans issue, it is an issue for the entire nation, but we have in terms of mental health providers. these long wait times that i mentioned are partially caused by staffing shortages. i am pleased that secretaries hassecchi -- shinsechi applied to hire more mental health conditions. as of the 13th they fired more than3000, including more 1100 of these new mental health clinicians. this is good progress towards reaching their goal. emphasize this point, i am very concerned that va has hired only 37 clinicians in the last two months. i understand the challenges. i think we all understand the challenges. you do not walk down the street and get the first person. you want to make sure the person you are hiring is well-trained and of the quality that the veterans deserve, but clearly the va must step up hiring if they intend to meet their goal of 16 new clinicians by june of this year. they will be attempting to meet over 500 in the next few months and i do not see how that is possible. we do want to talk to the va about how they are moving
,000 per child on public schools and they don't provide an education that allows people to move forward. we need to give parents choices on how to take some of their own money and go to private schools or parochial schools or home school, and give people those opportunities so the competition can provide a better education for people. i think you're quite right that the government has damaged the hopes and opportunities and the ability to move forward of millions of americans. they've got regulations that kill jobs. how many americans could be building the pipeline they wanted to bring down through nebraska, and the government spent four years delaying that. that's tens of thousands of jobs, people could have gotten the first job of their life, stopped by that. we need to do more exploration in alaska and other places. again, tens, hundreds of thousands of jobs. the champber of commerce estimates a million jobs killed by government enact. people need to be treated fair live with the government and that's not happening. >> coming up, congressman steve pierce of new mexico discusses the repub

education here in the united states. we need more students studying math and study site. and we must fully embrace the rich diverse of asian americans. in my congressional district, for example, we have have chinese-americans, taiwanese american chinese-americans, taiwanese american, korean american, filipino americans. in fact, there are 95 countries of origin represented within the 39th congressional district. i have long consulted with my constituents to better understand development abroad. and many of my constituents are active in trading and investing in asia, which is a source of our national wealth. last congress i sponsored legislation to make it easier for state universities in california to teach strategic linkages, such as chinese, so that our students are better equipped to do business and conduct diplomacy overseas. i'm a strong advocate for increasing the number of visas for foreigners who received advanced degrees in critical science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. in the u.s., 76% of all registered -- from the top, from the top 10% producing. they come fro
